This is one of the big picture industry topics I feel strongest about.

Fact: the more regulation a financial market has, the less corruption it has.

Legal betting = less fixed games.

It is so much easier to bet a fixed game into a non-regulated market and not get caught. If 100% of action were regulated, there would be many fewer fixed games (because the risk would be much greater)

The general media does not understand this.
They feel like that legalized betting means more betting ... the amount of betting will be similar either way, that's the key. And even if the lowered taboo associated with legalization increases the amount being bet, ANYONE willing to break the law to fix a game will certainly be willing to break the law to bet that game with an illegal bookie.

So a lack of legal betting stops nothing, but legal betting and the oversight/regulation that goes with it acts as a strong deterrent.

I'd love to hear your thoughts ...

I agree and think their are soo many fixed games.  If you were an NBS player let's say, and you have mooch family members with no money.  Why wouldn't you tell them to "bet the unders or overs/win"tonight.??Gets them off your back and stops them from mooching off you.

What is VERY obvious here is that hardly anyone actually understands HOW and WHY games are fixed and WHO fixes them at this level!!!!---THE only scenario that is CLOSE to the truth here is the tennis post.  The FAMILY and FRIENDS thing is great for HIGH-SKOOL ball but ur dealing with PROS and big-money college programs here. These guys don't think TWICE as to whether they're BREAKING the law---they almost NEVER get caught. It doesn't make a SH?T whether its LEGALIZED betting or ur run-of-th-mill liquor store owner book---the FIX trickles down to EVERYONE!!!! I know I sound like I wrote th book on th FIX---NO---but I've been very close to a few guys that SPILLED-th-BEANS during several nites of friendly drinking. It only took a month for me to know for SURE that this was no BS. Unfortunately I was as BROKE then as I am now or I woulda made a DECENT profit. As it was I made a few bucks and had to relocate for my job and lost touch with th guys. If I knew then what I know NOW--I woulda stayed and probably either been a RICH man or maybe in prison---I would ROLL th dice!!!!----I digress--the point here is that NONE of what I read here has ANYTHING to do with MAJOR gambling--legal or otherwise!!!!!------Take it for what it's WORTH!!!
